The end of last week was yet another blocking/finishing extravaganza. This happens every so often: I finish lots of things and toss the into a basket to block them eventually, and then one day I wake up and want to finish and weave in the ends of All The Things. I think the studio overhaul of last week really got my productivity kickstarted.
This project was such a nice little palate cleanser. It was really fun to watch the colors change, and the lace pattern was completely brainless. Plus the finished product is everything I wanted it to be: light, warm, and very colorful. It also looks like the kind of thing you could buy for eighty bucks at Anthropologie, for the lovely price of $33 and fifteen hours of knitting time.
And, in case anybody wanted a refresher of the pattern:
1-Row Lace Scarf
Using long-tail cast-on, CO 40 stitches.
*k2, yo, k2tog* across row.
Repeat this row on both RS and WS until scarf reaches desired length.
Block the sucker.
